Patient :I am 21 weeks pregnant by LMP and 20 weeks by USG. My USG report shows my baby's nasal bone measures 4.1mm, BPD (41.7mm) corresponds to 18weeks 4days and HC (171.6mm) corresponds to 19weeks 5 days. According to my genetic doctor, baby's brain development is lagging which is a sign of mental retardation. This can be confirmed by analysing the next month's USG report. My Quadruple Test shows Low Risk. I am really worried. Is my baby really not mentally fit? what are the chances? and what is the best solution in my case? I earnestly need your opinion on it :-(
